Mail art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

The Karnival of Trash has inspired exploration of Trashpo form and dialogs far beyond anything I would have predicted when I began what I considered to be at the time a limited and humble call. Today we have what might be more precisely viewed as an homage (rather than a fake) to Moan Lisa by none other than his eminence Richard Canard. Perhaps you missed Moan Lisa’s most recent entry upon which Richard’s work is based:

Here is a closer look at Richard Canard’s elegant calligraphy:

I believe this is the first art created by Richard Canard that addresses the Moan Lisa phenom, but I might be wrong. Here is the reverse side:

My conjecture is that this is Richard’s response to the grease stains on the Moan Lisa work. Actually, I find this visually pleasing. What about you?

Thanks as ever to Richard Canard for this and other pieces that have arrived during the Karnival of Trash.
